For what you want to do I would probably go with at least a 4 inch barrel, probably in a .38 Special. For plinking and target the 4 inch barrel will give you a longer sight radius and a little more accuracy at longer distances. This is compared to a typical snubbie used for concealed carry. A 6" will improve things even more.
As far as recommending a specific firearm, that ain't gonna happen unless you provide a lot more information. You haven't even told us what kind of targets you'll be using or whether you want single or double action.
